The NBA is back in action today as the New York Knicks will clash with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Knicks are heading into this game after an impressive 92-85 road win over Indiana in their last game Saturday night. And on the other side, Cleveland comes in off a 131-112 home loss to Golden State Saturday night in their last contest.
New York Knicks Form
The Knicks are heading into this game after a solid display in the game against the Pacers. Also, that was a good win as their record before the Indiana game was 4 defeats in 5 games. And that form is a major reason why the Knicks are in the cellar of the Atlantic Division, 21.5 games behind the Raptors for the top spot. As for the Eastern Conference playoff picture, the team is 13th, 7.5 games behind the Magic for the final playoff spot.
On the offensive side of the game, the Knicks score 103.8 points per game. And that record is enough for the 28th spot in the league in scoring. Also, NY has an average of 46.3 boards a night combined with 21.2 assists per contest this year. Additionally, the Knicks are 17th in scoring defence by conceding an average of 111.2 points per game this season.
Cleveland Cavaliers Form
The Cavaliers are not having a good season so far. Moreover, they have now dropped their third straight game and their 10th in the last 11 games as they were handled by Golden State. Especially, the loss against the Warriors was a big blow since they are a team that entered Saturday with only three road wins. Now the Cavaliers are at the basement of the Central Division, 29 games behind the Bucks for the top spot. As for the Eastern Conference playoff picture, the team is tied for 14th 8.5 games behind the Magic for the final playoff spot.
On the offensive side of the game, the Cavaliers score an average of 105.5 points per game. Also, Cleveland has 44.4 caroms combined with 21.9 assists per contest. The Cavaliers are below average defensively, as they are 23rd in scoring defence by allowing 114.5 points per game.
Both teams are not having a good season so far. Moreover, both sides are suffering lately as well. However, I believe that the Knicks will have the upper hand in this game. They have managed to pull a great win in the game against the Pacers on the road. So the winning momentum is on their side. Take the Knicks to win against the Cavaliers in this one.
